Sandhill Cranes

Living just minutes from the Indiana Dunes and the Lake Michigan shore, bird migration is a common yearly ritual. In my opinion, nothing beats the Sandhill Crane migration. Their size alone; with a wingspan of 5-6 feet, is spectacular to see. On any given day during the migratory season, you can see thousands of them flying overhead.

Here are a few shots I took in March:

  3. Love the sandhill cranes. We drove through the sandhill area of Nebraska but they were gone. We caught up with them in Florida though. That many must have been noisy, they do like to squawk a lot.

    • They make sort of a warbling sound. When you’ve got a couple hundred going over it’s like a chorus. Not bad at all.

  4. They are currently flying over our region in France heading North, they are early which promises to be a long and hot Summer, we hear them before we see them!!! Great photo.
